Every lesson is tailored to the individual students goals and skill level. I practice positive coaching, creating an inclusive environment that focuses on weekly achievement goals. The focus is on jazz and contemporary styles with an emphasis on ear training, proper technique, Jazz music theory, sight reading and memorization.There will be very little exposure to classical repertoire. I look forward to working with you or your student!

One of the most talented teachers I’ve met. He gave private lessons to both of our kids for 3 years until we moved. Encouraging and positive environment. It was great to see so much progress. He is one of the good ones!!!

Emmanuel is outstanding! Not only was he able to explain difficult concepts simply but he never made me feel self conscious about my playing. Highly recommend!

Hello there! My name is Tyler and I would love to teach you or your child how to play the guitar.

I purchased my first guitar when I was 8 years old and was so excited to learn how to play. I took my first lesson a year later, but was disappointed. I didn't find it fun and therefore didn't want to practice. I wanted to play songs, but all the instructor wanted me to do was learn basic theory. After not making progress... I stopped the lessons. The next year I tried a different instructor, but still did not learn much. The issue for me was playing guitar wasn't fun for me at this point. And that is the most important thing in my opinion if you are going to dedicate yourself to learning to play. A few years later... I discovered punk rock music and online guitar tabs. Suddenly, I was able to look up on my own how to play songs that I was actually excited to play. This changed everything. I started to practice daily. Within a few more years... I could handle almost any basic chord ...

I have been playing drum kit and percussion for over ten years and teaching for about seven. I've played a little bit of everything - pop, rock, punk, hip-hop, ska/reggae, blues, jazz, and even musical theater. In addition to drum kit, I can play and teach hand drums (djembe and conga) in contemporary or traditional African, Latin, American styles. I'm happy to share my skills and expertise with drummers of all ages and skill levels.

Hey everyone! I spend most of my time touring the world with A list pop artists as guitarist/multi-instrumentalist, but in my spare time I love passing along the gift of music via teaching. I've been playing guitar for half my life, and in addition to guitar I can also teach beginner bass, piano, drums and music production. I've taught all different kinds of students, ranging in age and ability. I tailor my lessons specifically for each students needs, and to match their personalities and interests. Wanna learn how to play a Taylor Swift song? Sick! Wanna learn a blues chord progression? Awesome! Wanna learn how to shred like a Norwegian death metal god? I got you!

Lola is a professional at what she does. From the moment I walked into my first lesson, I could tell she was very knowledgeable about music. Beyond music, she is a very kind and welcoming woman who is patient and understanding. She talks with you and really cares about what you're saying. She is a great teacher for anyone of all levels of experience in music and I recommend her for everyone.

I’ve had three lessons so far and I feel so supported by Gail. I’m an adult student and Gail is very patient with me and kind. I actually really enjoy going to my lessons! She has already taught me so many handy tricks that she learned from many years of experience. I’m brand new to the violin and Gail is excellent at helping me with my hand placement and I feel confident that what she’s teaching me is really setting me up for success and good habits with the violin.

My son was excited about Ms Gail’s knowledge of the viola.

I Love my lessons with Ms. Gail! She makes the lesson fun and is always encouraging me to step out of my comfort zone and try an exercise before a scheduled lesson. I would highly recommend Ms. Gail!

Despite my son’s habit of not practicing enough, Joey has been patient with him and has managed to discover what sparks my son’s interest. Now, Nicholas has greatly improved and plays guitar very often, and enjoys it. Joey has also been flexible when we have had to request schedule changes. He has also been thorough in following up on questions or discussions we have had"

"A few years ago, I moved from Ohio to Florida and was concerned about finding a new piano teacher. To my disappointment, after trying two teachers, I was still left looking for a better one. That's when I had the pleasure of meeting Lana. Lana has reinforced my knowledge of music theory, challenged my technical skills, and most importantly improved my overall ability to play. Through Lana's various teaching techniques and exercises, I have never played better and or had more enthusiasm to keep learning!"

"I took piano lessons as a child and had a very strict and rigid teacher. Because of that, I didn’t really enjoy playing. I didn’t play at all for several decades until this year when I decided to give it another try. I am so lucky to have met Natasha.
Can’t say enough how pleased (I am) when I walk away from every lesson with her! She is soft spoken and loves music, which reflects on her passion to teach others. She makes me think, she makes me work, but it’s a blast!
If you are serious about learning how to play the piano, I highly recommend Natasha as your piano teacher."
